talk about healthcare and education because we have plans on both those things. what we're going to do is roll back tax cuts -- and i want everyone to hear this because there have been exaggerations made on the campaign trail -- roll back tax cutes for people who make over $200,000 a year. we will do that. we want to keep the tax cuts that are in place for people who make less than $200,000 a year and give additional tax cuts to middle-class families, tax cuts for healthcare, tax cuts to help families pay for their college tuition, tax cuts for childcare. these families are struggling and hurting and they need more tax relief, not less tax relief. but to help get us on the path to a balanced budget, we want to get rid of some of the bureaucratic spending in washington. they've actually layered on more supervisory people, people at the supervisory level in this government. we also want to close some corporate loopholes. i want to be honest with people. we can't eliminate this deficit. people have heard that over and over and over in four years. we cannot do it. we're in too deep a hole.
coverage. the second part, which is happening now in massachusetts, is to lower health-care costs. what romneycare did was to say we have all these people who are getting hurt or are ill and not treating their illness because they don't have health insurance. hospitals are required to care for them. . ultimately, we as taxpayers pay back money. romneycare upended the process and said we will take steps so that everyone elsdid tell the insurance. people may be a diabetic with complications from diabetes and they can routinely go and see a primary care position instead of waiting until there's a massive flareup and going to the emergency room and then the hospital bill is out of sight. the other thing is, in massachusetts and most other states, let's say you have a roofer who works for himself and does not have felt insurance. he falls off a house and breaks his back. he will wind up in a hospital and the hospital cannot say we will not take care of you. they will treat him. one thing could happen is he essentially goes bankrupt trying to pay his medical bills. or the hospital end up abso
to hear more about the health care plan. i did some research about his health care plan. he had a health-care plan back in 2010. all obamacare people will have to get a chip implanted. i wanted mitt romney to ask him about that. i thought mitt romney did a great job about explaining himself and the economy. neither candidate brought the comment about each other. i'm waiting for the next debate. i voted for john mccain. host: what do you do in pittsburgh? caller: i am a nurse. host: are you on the phone and driving? caller: yes. host: i was going to put it mitt romney and president obama supporter on and see if they could convince you which way to vote. not when you're driving. i would feel guilty. thank you and call back. frank in ohio. caller: i was at a point until i looked at the soap opera last night. supposedlyerstand how the government and the churches -- i thought there would be a dividing point between them. i feel like one of those 47% people now because the job that i had -- i have lost that due to certain situations. not of my fault. secondly, to me it looks like a sham. host: the
's given us healthcare reform. it did not reform health care. it added more people to a failed system. it gave us the failed stimulus. the only shovel ready project really funded in a large sort of way was adding additional trillion dollars debt on our middle class. it also gave us not necessarily an energy policy but an environmental policy. you don't have to look very far down the veto to see the closing plant. it will cost us 35 jobs. it's going to cost the city of billings over $10 million a year in income in the surrounding area. it is going to add as much as 25% to our utility bills. that is the equivalent of shutting off the electricity to 100,000 homes. that's entire city of billings. that's the kind of economics we've gotten from the failed policy of president obama and from the failed policy of senator tester. >> congressman rehberg didn't answer the question why we should vote for him. the fact of the matter is, we had a broken healthcare system and we had to make some changes, and making sure people with people with preexisting condition have coverage. we have to hold insu
're not going to have that doctors or medical personnel to support that. i think we need a health-care revision. there's no question about that. but we need a health care revisions that's going to allow a marketplace to compete to bring down the cost. we need to be able to buy insurance across state lines. that means states have to get out of mandates for insurance. we need tort reforms to bring down the cost and we need accessibility for insurance. we need affordability for insurance. this current law is not going to do that. it will continue to drive up health-care costs and the cost of insurance premiums. >> you have 90 seconds. >> let me tell you why -- why i have dedicated my life to the idea that everyone should have access to decent health care. there's a woman in connecticut who has worked hard all her life and so has her husband. her husband was switching jobs and in between those two jobs, during the week he was unemployed, their son was diagnosed with cancer. when it would to get insurance on her husband's new plan, they would not provide for because he had a pre-existing condition.

in 2005 and brings more than 20 years of leadership experience in the health-care industry. finally, that brings us to our keynote speaker tonight. most of us for member that moment sandra fluke entered the national spotlight. as a loss to net georgetown university, she testified before a house democratic committee on the importance of requiring insurance plans to cover contraception. her remarks drew the attention of radio talk-show host rush limbaugh, who called her names i will not dignify by repeating. but maybe what is not well known is that she had long ago devoted her career to public interest advocacy. before attending georgetown, she created and lead a new exit program that helped bring quality services to victims of domestic violence and even trafficking. she also co-founded a new york statewide coalition that successfully lobbied for legislation allowing gay teenagers and other victims of partner violence to civil orders of protection. she recently graduated from georgetown's school of law and now spencer time speaking out on issues concerning women and health-care access
not necessarily keep up with health-care inflation, this would cost the average senior about $16,000 per -- $6,000 per year. year, but governor romney has said is he will maintain traditional medicare alongside it. there is still a problem. those insurance companies are clever about figuring out who are the younger and healthier seniors. they recruit them, leaving the older, sicker seniors in medicare. every health-care economist as said overtime, the traditional medicare system will collapse. you have people, like my grandmother, at the mercy of the private insurance system when they are most in need of decent health care. i do not think vouchers are the right way to go. this is not only my opinion. aarp thinks the savings we obtained from medicare bolstered the system, lengthened the medicare trust fund by eight years. benefits were not affected. if you repeal obamacare, those seniors will pay $600 more in prescriptions. there will have to pay co-pays. for basic checkups that can keep them healthier. the primary beneficiary of that repeal our insurance companies that are estimated to gain bi
, you will be on our side. if you think that doctors and patients should be making healthcare decisions rather than panels of bureaucrats in washington, you should be on our side. if you want a job, the approach i have been advocating is proven to work over 300,000, when we are working together. republicans and democrats making regulations more reasonable, taxes lower, freezing college tuition to make sure it is accessible and affordable to virginia. indeed, if you care about the future of your children or grandchildren, you should be on our side. i hope to be your voice in washington, the hard-working taxpaying families of virginia need someone on their side in washington. i hope to be there working for you and making sure that all americans, no matter their background, have that opportunity to cast their dreams. >> the economy is ready for a break. there are positive signs from last week, but i think that congress is the ankle weight right now. i think that the in it -- toge. the decision to filibuster and block a veteran jobs bill and farm bill before election day is a perfect examp
there with regards to moving our claims forward and expanding healthcare for our veterans. and a special thank you to the have. i know we're always trying to hold them accountable. sometimes we have to push them extra. one thing they did for alaska veterans t. v.a. in historic act of cooperation are now ensuring that veterans who are in rural alaska which in some cases 80% of our communities are not accessible by roads so they can't get in the vern van and go to the clinic, you have to fly and that could be $1,000 or more. but now veterans no matter where they live, they're going to get access to quality helingts care. and that is a huge step for all of our veterans in alaska. thanks to your organization for 130ring that effort and thanks to the v.a. for being invatetive in their efforts. i'll listen to the continued testimony. >> thank you i'd like to recognize my friend from sh arkansas, senator boozman. >> thank you. it really is good to be with you. many of you know that i served in the house for a number of years and served with these guys for a long long time and there is nobody that puts ve
, health-care costs have gone up by $2,500 per family. the question is how to get them going again. it is energy and trade. the right kind of training programs. the president mentioned those ideas. education. it is key. it is the future of our economy. we have 47 training programs. they are reporting to eight agencies. we have to get those dollars back to the states and to the workers so they can create pathways into training they need for jobs that will help them. taxation. we should bring the tax rates down. for corporations and individuals. for us not to lose revenue, i lowered deductions and credits and intentions so we keep taking in the same money when you account for growth. energy is critical. the president pointed out that production of oil and gas in the u.s. is up but not due to his policies -- in spite of his policies. all of the increase in natural gas and oil has happened on private land, not on government land. your administration has cut the number of permits and licenses in half. if i am president, i will double them. i will get the oil from offshore and alaska. i
to a presentta tive healthcare system and making sure we end discrimination on insurance and making sure people are covered is going to be good for business. >> i've been pretty clear about my position on life. we can talk about it now or another time. with regard to judges senator, i think maybe at some point we'll talk about the judge that you held up for so long. but the question at hand was the affordable care act. well, listen, there is no question that we've got big challenges in our country and there are elements of so-called obama care. e i saw last night he didn't mind it last night referred that way. and i've supported them here in new jersey. people with preexisting illnesses should be covered. young adults should have some time perhaps to stay on their parent's policies. but this law comes at a very very high cost. 20 new taxes, $716 billion out of medicare. it's not right senator. >> the next question. >> early in the debate you said as you often do that this country has experienced 43 months of over 8% unemployment and on your website under joe's plan you say in new jersey they ha
health-care costs. when it comes to social security, you do not need a major structural change to make sure it is therefore the future. >> we will follow up on this. you have two minutes on social security and entitlements. >> our seniors depend on these programs. any time we talk about entitlements, people become concerned. neither the president nor i are proposing any changes for any current retirees or near- retirees either to social to carry or medicare. if you are 60 or older, you do not need to listen any further. for younger people we need to talk about what changes will occur. when i said the president is not proposing changes, he is for medicare. for medicare, for current retirees, he is cutting $700 -- money. everyone will get a low rate is not just going out the places where there is abuse. that is saying we are cutting the rates. hospitals and nursing homes say they will not take any medicare patients. 50% of doctors say they will not take more medicare patients. we have 4 million people on medicare advantage that will lose medicare advantage because of those $716 billion i
for us to do with medicare in particular is to lower health-care costs. but when it comes to social security, as i said, you don't need a major structural change in order to make sure that social security is there for the future. >> will follow up on this. first, governor romney, you have two minutes on social security and entitlements. >> well, jim, our seniors depend on these programs, and i know anytime we talk about entitlements, people become concerned that something's got to happen that's going to change their life for the worse. the answer is neither the president nor i are proposing any changes for current retirees or near retirees, either to social security or medi-scare. so if you're 60 or run 60 or older, you don't need to listen any further. but for younger people, we need to talk about what changes are going to be occurring. all, i just thought about one bit that is, in fact, i was wrong when i said the president isn't proposing any changes for current retirees. in fact, he is on medicare put on social security he's not. but on medicare, for current retirees, he's cutti
in the united states senate to create good jobs, good healthcare, a quality education and a retirement we all deserve. >> when all is said and done, your campaign seemed to have slid into a familiar floyd which is you're portraying your opponents in ways we have heard time and time again. you're portrayed as a friend of the rich as somebody who will make middle class pay more because the rich shouldn't have any sort of implications of their taxes changes. >> you are portrayed as a techs and spend liberal. tell me specifically what one thing about your opponent makes him less qualified than you to serve in the u.s. senate. >> you go first. >> well he mentions the middle class, he mentioned it tonight. he does it fairly often. but the middle class is not doing very well at all. we've got to do better. and so i read the pless -- press releases that you put out and i've heard your opening statement, but i don't hear any action items about how we're going to do it better. and so i've got a plan. i know that if we do what we've been doing, more of the same, well, we'll have the same outcome and tha
of healthcare reform did away with insurance company's ability to deny coverage for people with pre- existing conditions. part of the trade-off was requiring people to have coverage for individual mandates. good would you say we are keeping pre-existing conditions coverage, and if so, how would you pay for it? >> i support repealing the health care act. what i hear from the state of nebraska is they supported it as well. did we do not like the individual mandate. we do not like the government coming between a doctor and a patient. pre-existing conditions, that is important we are able to address that. what i will tell you is we will not pay for it by spilling over 7000 billion dollars from medicare. that was the trade-off on the health-care aren't now. that was the deal made. that is not sound policy. everybody knows it is not sound policy. we can look for savings with tort reform. medical procedures that are required are often unnecessary. that is one way we can look at it. >> i signed a bill, and it had no impact of all. this is a decrease in payment to insurance companies and hospitals. th
are up, food prices are up, health-care costs have gone up by $2,500 per family. the question is how to get them going again. it is energy and trade. the right kind of training programs. the president mentioned those ideas. education. it is key. it is the future of our economy. we have 47 training programs. they are reporting to eight agencies. we have to get those dollars back to the states and to the workers so they can create pathways into training they need for jobs that will help them. taxation. we should bring the tax rates down. for corporations and individuals. for us not to lose revenue, i lowered deductions and credits and intentions so we keep taking in the same money when you account for growth. energy is critical. the president pointed out that production of oil and gas in the u.s. is up but not due to his policies -- in spite of his policies. all of the increase in natural gas and oil has happened on private land, not on government land. your administration has cut the number of permits and licenses in half. if i am president, i will double them. i will get the oil from
. most of it now is health care. i have been in the health-care area for about 12 years now but i really have not seen any discrepancies in terms of friends and family here that have looked for jobs and were not able to find a decent job. the pay is really good as well. benefits are great. i have no complaints. host: we have a few more minutes with this topic but we want to talk about the unemployment rate. we also want to talk about your job status. more is available at their website. ohio, caller:wytcliff is 20 miles east of cleveland. host: monday on this program, we will base our show from ohio state university. we will take a look at issues in ohio and the economics and the larger context of the presidential election but go ahead -- caller: the unemployment drop of 7.8% is wonderful. however, i think it is deceiving. like myself and quite a few other people, i was on unemployment. i am no longer receiving unemployment because it ran out. i am working now. i am working in the mortgage industry which i was laid off from. in manufacturing, there are ample amounts of manufacturing posit
for a presidential candidates. the big achievement was the health-care bill, which seemed like a good idea at the time to him. i do not think it is a very comparable situation. in a funny way, i would say we know less. it is harder to anticipate what the white house administration will look like then it may be normally would be the case with bob dole or john mccain or bill clinton, people that have been an office for a long time, either as senator or governorships. one had a sense of the strengths and weaknesses. the other question is the campaign, what have we learned from the campaigns? i will think about that for a minute. that is an interesting question. there is no obvious thing that leaps out. look at the way but romney has run the campaign, therefore he will be this kind of president. t. iran is min it is not the path to really make serious arguments and really educate the public. mitt romney has said this himself. it is of anything for a can of it. it is a funny thing for a candidate to say that that is what he thinks of campaigning. you could be a very serious president as george
panels and between the patient and doctor. that is something i do not agree with in our health-care law. that's one of the reasons i oppose it. these are times we have to look at what is best for everyone to have the best kind of health care they can have. i believe in preventive health care and let me just address one thing before -- let me digress for a second. i have never said i'm for privatizing social security or our medicare plans. that's clearly not my thing. congressman murphy knows that has to be honest about that. i will support continuing reform to social security and medicare simply prolong it for our generation. congressman murphy voted to take $716 billion of medicare to fund the affordable health care act. i don't think that is what we should do. we're there for than going to eventually did i those services to our seniors or hospitals or doctors who are going to take medicare patients. . it is being taken out of the pockets of drug industries and drug companies who are making billions of care for seniors. if you are going to be serious about reducing the rate of growth o
. that was in the balance in the health-care. he found a clever way to finesse the decision. he undermined the commerce clause and it is more into a tax decision. the impact on medicaid -- it was good dear president obama speak about the dangers of undercutting medicaid. that is still something to watch. roberts saw myself as an institution last and not a member of the gang of four. the medicaid decision is something to watch. host: this is a special segment for us. we have students on board the c- us making,ign 2012 bo tour through ohio. airbus is at miami university -- our bus is at miami university. 10 students will be participating. our thanks to time warner cable for getting us connected. john is our for student at miami university. caller: good morning. what can president obama or governor romney due to work with the next congress? do think this will lead to a greater assertion of executive authority in the next term? guest: thank you, john. i did not know i would be facing the toughest questioners. congressional approval is at an all-time low. it is up there with paris hilton and the communist p
this country and we're setting up creating two new entitlements for the president's healthcare reform? does that make any common sense that you will create two new entitlements? >> now a question from mike dennisson. >> senator tester you strongly send conservation group. congressman rehberg you strongly supported by oil and gas. >> if you take a look at the xl >> now question from my attendance and to senator tester. >> for borders looking at the contrast, why should they vote for you? >> because i dst, they vote for you? >> because i do not i ask them how high to jump and jump. if you look at the conservation are buying, there are a lot of groups out there that do not want to see the pipeline built. i want to see the pipeline built. there needs to be a record -- a level of regulation out there, but it cannot be crazy. we need a certain -- we need to insert a little montana common sense into that going forward. got othermes i've entities, because we have to do what is right for montana in this country and that is exactly what i do. my record is proven on that. we did it becau
, the individual mandate. if the health-care law is repealed, would you favor keeping pre-existing conditions coverage, and if so, how would you pay for it? >> i support repealing the health care act. i think that is important. what i hear from people across the state is that they overwhelmingly support it as well. we don't like the individual mandate, we don't like government coming between a doctor and patient. pre-existing conditions -- you know, i am visiting with nebraskans and at that is important that we address that and i believe the united states senate will come together to address it. what i will tell you is that we won't pay for it by stealing over $700 billion from medicare, because that was the trade-off on health care act now. that was the deal that was made. that is not sound policy. everybody knows it is not sound policy. what we can do is look for savings. we can look for savings with tort reform, because over 1/4 of the medical procedures that are required now are unnecessary. that is one way we can look for the money. >> letter kerrey? -- senator kerrey? >> first of all, i
it harder for you to vote, the folks in washington who think they should control that health-care choices that women should be making for themselves. only you can make change happen. only you have the power to move us forward. from the day we began this campaign, i always said real change takes time, it takes more than one term. you cannot do it if it have a president who writes off half the nation before he even takes office. you know, in 2008 47% of the country did not vote for me. on the night of the election i said all those americans, i may not have won your votes, i have heard your voices, i need your help, and i will be your president, too. that is all i want to say to denver. what i want to say to the great state of colorado, i do not know how many of you will be with me this time around, but i will plead with you no matter what, because i'm not fighting to create democratic or republican, jobs, i am fighting to create american jobs. i am not fighting to improve schools in red states or blue states, i am fighting to improve schools in the united states. and if we rally around a ne
was in the balance. that was in the balance in the health-care. he found a clever way to finesse the decision. he undermined the commerce clause and it is more into a tax decision. the impact on medicaid -- it was good that president obama spoke about the dangers of undercutting medicaid. that is still something to watch. roberts saw myself as an institution last and not a member of the gang of four. the medicaid decision is something to watch. host: this is a special segment for us. we have students on board the c-span campaign 2012 bus making a tour through ohio. our bus is at miami university. 10 students will be participating. our thanks to time warner cable for getting us connected. john is our for student at miami university. caller: good morning. what can president obama or governor romney due to work with the next congress? do think this will lead to a greater assertion of executive authority in the next term? guest: thank you, john. i did not know i would be facing the toughest questioners. congressional approval is at an all-time low. it is up there with paris hilton and the communist p
much for fear of losing my job, but i am in the health-care industry. host: president obama, wrapping up with students at ohio state university. both candidates are in the state today, the last day for voter registration. after this rally, a number of students will be boarding buses to go register to vote. it is the final day to do that. mitt romney is campaigning. he was in iowa earlier. later this evening, he will have the rally in ohio. he spends time in the state tomorrow. chicago is next. tony is there on our democratic line. caller: how are you? hello? they turn me off. host: we are not cut you off. please go ahead. caller: i watched the debate between mitt romney and president obama. mitt romney took over the debate. the moderator have no control over him whatsoever. it was almost like he was on some type of drug. i have fan voting for a very long time. i vote for my parents, but could not vote. i see no substance whatsoever coming out of romney's mouth. we have two wars that have not been paid for. he wants to lead us back into another war. are people paying attention? host: w
in firms i am associated with to give health-care benefits appeared only part-time do not -- benefits. the strikers that you criticize me for where strikers at a company that was not invested in when i was at bain capital. you parade that around like it is my problem. as the minimum wage, you say i'm not in favor of the minimum- wage. you have yet to produce any document that says i do not support the minimum-wage. when will this and? >> i would have thought that mr. romney would have asked me what i was going to do for working families in massachusetts, how we're going to get our economy on the road, exposing differences, talking about the measures are going to affect children, working families, our senior citizens. mr. romney, i will provide after this debate all the documentation you asked for and i hope you will tell me where you provide health insurance for your companies and overseas and finally let me just say this -- paul tsongas said it well yesterday -- he is not a flake of mind, he is a distinguished member of the united states senate. when he made it -- when he called that
problems, energy problems, environmental problems. our health-care system, our tax system. our regulatory policies. washington has taken another five-week vacation. it took a five-week vacation in august, worked two weeks, taking another five-week vacation. if these people did a better job, they would not have to take some much time off to campaign, raising money, because if they did a good job, people will reward you. when you do not do a good job, you have to spend a lot more time doing that. >> do you think we would be better off with a parliamentary system, where one party to control things for a time, and we did not have to deal with a republican house, a senate of democrats, so we are always at this gridlock? we kind of let the supreme court make the decision because the politicians cannot do it. >> we need to work at bath, but i have no idea how, because as you know, that is the way it is. it is human nature to maintain the status quo until the things get terrible. then people get flexible. that is the worst time to solve the problem. the best time to solve a problem is when your t
with to give health-care benefits appeared only part-time do not have health care benefits. that happens to be the same as your firm. a strike as you criticize me for. you know they were strikers of a company we were not investigated in -- invested in. you parade that are around as if it is my problem. i am a fan of the minimum wage. when will this end? [applause] >> i would have thought mr. romney would avast me what i was going to do for working families in massachusetts, how we would get our economy on the road, expressing differences, talking about the real measures that were going to affect children. i will provide all the documents and you asked for. i hope you tell me where you provide health insurance for your companies overseas. finally, let me say this. it was set well yesterday. he is a distinguished former senator of united states. let's talk about health care, education, training, new jobs, infrastructure, our different visions for massachusetts. that is what the people of massachusetts want to talk about. that is what i think they want to hear about. >> i want to know why y
worked with thim them every week and aument all the time and managed to get his healthcare plan passed with only two descending votes. so i think you saw some of that from him. in terms of the brooder picture is americans -- and this is not a knock, they generally want what they don't have. when one party is in control you tend to have elections like 2006 or 2010 where the party that controls everything gets slapped down. and then when you have what you have now where you have split control where the democrats have 2/3 and the republicans have 1/3 of washington, then people say i think we'll be better with one party control and then they say be careful what you wish for. >> i just have two comments. last night my reaction to the debate was where is the substance mr. romney? is that a good debate just throwing around a lot of comments. and i didn't think the spt taking credit for some of the things he's doing. and the second comment i is minority voters are scared of the i.d. i would like to see if you would comment on how you're polling and if you're involved with any of the hispanic l
to spend huge sums of money for change around the organization of our health-care system -- i'm not sure of that one did or not but generally speaking, the more important legislation moves fast. that is because a deal has been struck and if we have to wait two or three days, the deal can be broken up by all the interests. that is congress saying we've got the decision and you don't have them, public, one of the reasons i like transparency as ideologic, it represents the shift of power back from congress out to the people who congress is elected by. >> as we get ready to go to questions, let me make one or two very quick points -- in terms of successes on our team, there has been a cultural shift in the house. people in both parties in different places within the institution are having the conversation that they really did not have before. you can tell by my panelists from the senate rules committee about how difficult it is to have this kind of conversation in the other chamber. at least at the house, there seems to be a number of members who are serious about these issues in that their
no benefits to americans. we have 40,000 employees in firms i am associated with to give health-care benefits appeared only part-time do not have health care benefits. that happens to be the same -- the same as your firm. a strike as you criticize me for. you know they were strikers of a company we were not investigated in -- invested in perry purveyed that -- you parade that are around as if it is my problem. i am a fan of the minimum wage. when will this end?
